I think I've seen at least one or two commercials over the years, but I still get questions about my Slingshot, so it would definitely seem Polaris should do something to increase awareness of the Slingshot.
Dropping the S model seems like a poor marketing decision since a I think a lot of people might jump on the automatic version at a little over the Base model's cost.
The Slingshot has been out for about 5 years and most people do not know what they are. The only folks who seem to know about them either have snowmobiles or Razors because they see them in the Polaris dealer when they’re shopping for other things.
A couple of years ago Polaris took 4 Slingshots along with four drivers to Sturgis to give people rides. Why not just let the people drive them. Harley takes 3 or 4 semis full of motorcycles for people to test ride. Who has more motorcycles on the rode?
I posted this a while ago, maybe years by now, and I still stand by it. If they want to sell more Slings they need to add a wheel or remove a wheel.
In the 100 year history of 3 wheelers they have never caught on. Its not as exciting as a riding motorcycle or all-weather and safe as driving an auto. At first I thought the Sling had a chance, no more. But thats OK, we have ours. Lets Enjoy
I do have one issue with what they said in the article. They said one of the Slingshot pluses is that it's a great attention getter. That's not a plus for me. Just once I'd like to spend more time in a store than in the parking lot answering Slingshot questions and letting people sit in my Sling so they can take a picture.
Looking for a cigarette lighter that fits what "looks" like a standard cig lighter port between the seats - but I bought a lighter at O'Reilly's and it doesn't fit the port. Is there something odd about the port that I don't know about, or am I just a dope and bought the wrong thing? Thx!
Hello all, I just signed on to the Forum. I've spent the past few weeks reading posts and researching Slingshots and now I'm ready to buy. I found a really nice 2016 SL at a dealership about 4 hours from me, 5000 miles on it and just what i was looking for. However, I just did a recall search...
I was recently asked about the shock settings in a PM for which this forum won't allow me to reply to because I haven't done the CAPTCHA verification thing, which in itself did not appear. Anyway, this input is to replay to that PM about setting the shocks;

I ordered coil overs on 4/26. I got an email that the order was received and my Credit Card was charged right away. I have emailed them and left several voicemails over the last two weeks and haven't had a single response. This is not the way to run a business. I have heard so many great...
